The rocker insists he feels sorry for the Babyshambles rocker and says he is proud that he was not the typical rock star and didn't get notoriety for taking drugs like other performers in the industry.
He said: "Those people get a lot more attention. Like Pete Doherty. I hear he's great. But I've never heard a Babyshambles song in my life
… I'd rather be doing what I'm doing.'
The singer insists he was never a "drug guy', because illegal substances make men under-perform in the bedroom.
He told Britain's Guardian Film and Music newspaper: "I have a nice wine habit, but I was never into drugs. Why do I need something that's going to grind my teeth all night and won't let me get it on with a woman.'

A well known French newspaper has reported that Babyshambles have entered into discussions with Geffen Records (http://www.geffen.com/) in the hope of securing a new record deal.
One source said: "The situation looks promising, but nothing is certain yet as Pete is scared that, signing to Geffen will cause people to draw more parallels between him and the tragic rock star Kurt Cobain. "
In the past Geffen records has been home to American bigshots like Nirvana, Beck, Blink 182, Sonic Youth and Mary J Blige.
Over time, the management at Geffen have dealt with many rebellious stars. It will be interesting to see how they handle Pete.
The rocker – no stranger to a good time himself – has defended the Babyshambles frontman from criticism over his notorious rock’n’roll lifestyle.
Gillespie, due for his biggest chart hit with Primal Scream’s new song Country Girl, believes Doherty is a “great songwriter”, who shares that elusive ‘it’ quality with a select group of British stars.
He explains, “He's obviously into his romantic poets and he likes to get intoxicated heavily, but he is a great songwriter and he is a great musician.
“He loves the press, the notoriety and the fame. I get that impression anyway. But what other rock 'n' roll star has what we've got? He's the only one apart from me, Liam Gallagher and Ian Brown. We're the only ones who have it."

Kate left her house with what appeared to be a bruised cheek, the Daily Mail reported Friday.
Babyshambles frontman Doherty had paid a call on his ex after photos were published of her with his former pal, MTV VeeJay Russel Brand, the newspaper said.
A source told the newspaper “her right cheek definitely looked much bigger than the other side,” but Moss’s reps said Doherty merely stopped in to take a shower and there was no injury—it was merely “an unfortunate camera angle.”
Moss and Doherty broke up after he refused to seek treatment for his highly publicized drug problems
Thursday, May 25, 2006
One website has reported that, Kate has found a new best friend in Carl Barat . Moss hooked up with Barat after one of his gigs in London recently and dumped her ‘friend’ Russell Brand to spend two and a half hours in Barat’s dressing room before heading back to the band’s hotel.
A source said “It sends a very clear message to Pete. Carl and Kate spent a lot of time talking and you can probably guess what about.
“It’s more like a couple of exes forming a bond to help each other heal their wounds. Carl was his best mate.
“It’s still very awkward for Carl to talk about it even though he gets asked all the time.
“They both still have feelings for Pete but when he’s the way he is, it’s impossible to be around him. It’s good for them to have become friends, a sort of Doherty support group. But it’ll hurt Pete, he’ll feel betrayed.”
Kate has fuelled rumors she's rekindled her romance with Pete after he was spotted leaving her north London home. Paparazzi took photos as he left the Kate's house earlier today and sprinted onto the road in front of a passing lorry, narrowly avoiding a serious accident. After pleading for a ride, Doherty fled on the rubbish disposal truck. Recent reports speculate the pair are dating again, nine months after Kate dumped Pete when photos of her snorting cocaine in a London recording studio were published in The Sun. She has since been linked to Big Brother's Russell Brand

The Sun has reported that Pete abandoned his cousin after he suffered a heroin overdose on Monday night ,fearing he'd be prisoned if they were caught together. According to the paper, Pete was taking the drug with his cousin Mark Peter, 30, following the band's gig in Aberdeen, when Mark began to overdose. Instead of helping him, Doherty arranged for an ambulance to be called and had his cousin carried outside the venue.A source told The Sun, "Mark ended up collapsing in a coma on the floor."Pete got hysterical and started screaming about how no one should call an ambulance because he did not want the police coming."So it was decided to tip off the ambulance and carry Mark outside."

The concert, attended by 1,400 fans, was temporarily halted due to a fire alarm and the venue was evacuated.
Grampian Police said it was a false alarm and two people were arrested. The concert was later able to continue after fans were allowed back into the Music Hall.
According to the papers, Pete is desperate to reconcile with his dad after their relationship with him broke down due to his drug addictions. Pete first started using heroin to avoid "the darkness" of life . Pete is still in contact with his mother but his father has disowned him. Pete says, "My dad won't talk to me. He won't acknowledge me; I'm not allowed on the army barracks they live on. "I thought he was my dad. I want a dad, I want him. I want to be close to him, I want him to be my father. I can see it's so simple in his eyes: the stupidity, destruction, wastefulness and deception that comes with the drugs, he can't accept or forgive".
Best of luck Pete. I know all of your true fans wish you well.

We said it first here at Www.Sailthealbion.tK a few days ago, however, this is what The Independant said today:
Rough Trade, which propelled acts such as the Smiths and the Strokes to success, said Doherty's band Babyshambles no longer has a contract with them. A spokesman for Rough Trade said: "He doesn't have a contract with us. We are obviously very fond of him, but at the moment we are not working with him."
An insider said: "Rough Trade were in the process of renegotiating a deal, but the talks broke down because it just proved to be so difficult to deal with Pete and the people he surrounds himself with."

George was reacting to the news that Doherty sprayed blood at a cameraman earlier this week and says he doesn’t understand what all the commotion is about.
He told mtv: “I don’t know what he’s done. What’d be interesting would be if he was like Mick Jagger or someone that has a history, but he’s made one record.
“It says something about the state of our industry that we’re so desperate for a rock and roll star… and we slag off Kate Moss for being a coke head and slag off Boy George for taking drugs but with Pete Doherty it’s like ‘Oh please be a rock and roll star!’ But what has he done?
“The Pete Doherty thing, I just don’t get it.”

Fans of the former Libertines frontman, Peter Doherty, have created a "destroy the sun" campaign using myspace. The Sun has been responsible for publishing many stories about Peter which have disgusted fans, however, with Peter doing stupid things like spraying blood at camera men, it's no wonder they can easily portray him in a negative light.
Let's be realistic...The stories the tabloids write about Peter are not very far from the truth. Sure, they say things like, "Moss-Dump the junky", which is very cruel, but that is what tabloids do. You're not going to stop them. If we want Pete to start being portrayed in a positive light, then maybe he should put down the drugs and pick up the guitar.
As one member of the official Libertines forum asked, "why don't we start a Save Pete From Himself campaign?". Let's face it. Peter could be ten times better if he focused on music and poetry instead of fucking around with needles.
The mission statement of the Destroy The Sun Campaign is as follows: " Destroy the sun is a campaign to stop the villification of Pete Doherty by Britain's renowned tabloid shite-rag, The Sun. We ultimately aim to prevent the allegations, exaggerations and slanderous comments made against a troubled musical genius. "
If you feel like joining this futile, yet highly amusing campaign, click HERE!!!
Pete Doherty sometimes tricks his friends into thinking he's dead to play a joke on them. Doherty's tour manager, revealed that the Babyshambles frontman is so 'messed up' at the moment that he enjoys playing the stupid pranks. She told the Sunday Times: "He sometimes pretends to overdose and lies there for 10 minutes, and then he laughs and thinks it is funny. It isn't."She also revealed that the 27-year-old makes his fans clean up his East London flat, aswell as getting them to do his laundry.
Well Pete...If you can get away with it, why not?

This time I really believe Pete has sunken too low.
The singer squirted a syringe-full of his own blood at MTV News cameramen after injecting heroin in view of the production team.
The camera lens was covered with Pete’s blood, leaving the crew needing to sterilise thousands of pounds worth of equipment.
Babyshambles memeber Drew McConnell was so angry with the singer that left the interview.
The interview was filmed after a gig in Berlin.
Pete had refused to join his bandmates,
But midway through the interview Pete appeared in the room .
He then took aim and unloaded his own blood on the camera lens with a syringe .
He then shouted: “That was a wicked shot. That’s going to make a cracking link that is.”
Pete's own bandmates followed this scene by saying: “I think the interview is over my friend. I’m really sorry about that mate, that’s fucked up.”
Then Drew fled and was seen kicking a door in a rage down the corridor.

One source said:
"The album is going to be a full-band one, else Adam wouldn’t be as excited as he is. Mik told us last night that he (Mik) had written 'about fifty percent' of it, including I Wish and Stone Me. Don’t know anything else about it, though he wouldn’t have lied. "
Some fans, however , are not happy with this choice saying:
"Epworth production is too clean, I mean, for fuck’s sake, Pat is playing a Jaguar on the single version of Killamangiro and it sounds as poppy as a Telecaster."
Whoever produces the album, let's just hope it's as good as Down In Albion

PETE Doherty’s mum, Jacqui, 52,is said to be writing a book on his life.
According to a source, "she will explain the heart-break of seeing your young, talented, poetic son, turning into England's most famous junky."
"She just wants the world to know what it is like to be the mother to someone like Pete who is held in such a high regard by many."
The book will delve into the debts of the singers life.
The source added: “She plans to name and shame the people who got Pete into drugs.”

Babyshambles have been dropped by rough trade, despite nearly finishing their second album.

And he’s not. the offer is there to release a second album, but to be honest its debatable.”

The late frontman of Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, stole the top spot.

It's clear that the The Libertines have truely proved themselves as Rock'n'Roll Gods.

Rocker BILL WYMAN has warned supermodel Kate Moss and her on-off "lunatic" boyfriend PETE DOHERTY they will soon regret their indulgent ways if they fail to quit partying. The former Rolling Stones bassist, 69, insists he always drinks tea instead of booze, and his lifelong rejection of hard drugs has left him in better shape than his contemporaries. But he watched the 'beautiful people' of the 1960s lose their looks and health through drink and drugs - and he fears Moss and Doherty are careering down the same road. He says, "Alcohol started hitting you at a certain age. "It's the same with drugs. Look at Marianne Faithfull. She was a beautiful girl. "It'll be the same with Kate Moss and that guy she hangs around with. Pete Doherty's a lunatic."

I think that this is true Kate deserves an applause for sticking by Pete through thick and thin. It's not admorable to turn your back on a friend in need and I doubt that anyone would.
Peter, I hope you are doing well and that things are working out.
"Blood paintings are something he has done for a long time. "I think they help explaining the photograph of Laura. It shows he does blood paintings." Doherty's former manager JAMES MULLORD has also recently had blood drawn from him by the singer. He adds, "He was very careful, he used a new needle. "Pete has become very good at using the syringe, either scratching it on to the paper or spraying an area. "It creates an effect a little like a Ralph Steadman cartoon."
Pete may seem crazy but VanGough cut off his own ear.

Facts about Smoking:Smoking harms not just the smoker, but also family members, coworkers and others who breathe the smoker's cigarette smoke, called secondhand smoke.
Among infants to 18 months of age, secondhand smoke is associated with as many as 300,000 cases of bronchitis and pneumonia each year.
Secondhand smoke from a parent's cigarette increases a child's chances for middle ear problems, causes coughing and wheezing, and worsens asthma conditions.
If both parents smoke, a teenager is more than twice as likely to smoke than a young person whose parents are both non-smokers. In households where only one parent smokes, young people are also more likely to start smoking.
Pregnant women who smoke are more likely to deliver babies whose weights are too low for the babies' good health. If all women quit smoking during pregnancy, about 4,000 new babies would not die each year.
So Pete, it's time to give up smoking!!!!!
